I was booked in to a twin room with a colleague, the beds were literally 1 foot apart, with one bed head less than a metre from the toilet. The bathroom was so small you couldn't even get dressed in there. The room was filthy & I wonder how long it had been since it had been vacuumed? Pay the... More

I booked in before reading the reviews here because the town was fairly full and the City Edge was convenient for my work, and cheap. Then I read the reviews. In fact it was OK. The room was small, but I've seen smaller. Two single beds were pushed together to make a double, but that's world-wide. The room was clean,... More

We booked two rooms here for two couples as we live quite far from the city and didn't want to catch a cab home. The rooms a really small with a king bed ( or two singles) a fridge and a bathroom. It was clean and tidy, it was perfect for us because all we needed was somewhere to sleep... More

I will always remember the smell of the corridor, the room with dirty carpet floor. Shower was not properly working, the bathroom was very small. The place is very disorganized, several times I saw the used mattresses in the deposit, which is not close. The prices are low, but not so low to excuse all of this. A flat on... More

This place is filthy. The room looked like it had not been cleaned for weeks. The owners of City Edge do not care how their rooms look and place no effort to maintain it. The sheets were dirty, the room had not been vacuumed and the toilet leaked. DO NOT STAY HERE. It is not worth it, even if the... More

Before heading down to Brisbane, me and my girlfriend were looking around the Internet for a hotel and chose city edge... One of the worst choices of my life... I thought there were some basic services. Looking at the price I wasn't expecting much in terms of services, but when I got there.... Woah... Let me describe to you... Boiler... More

This is about my 5th visit to this hotel over the last few years (and will be my last). It was formerly known as the Explorers Inn. I had booked a single room while in Brisbane to attend a concert. I was allocated room 301. When I first went into the room - it was quite plain to see that... More

Nice staff but this is not a place to go to relax. We found ourselves staying out as late as possible to avoid the place. Tv has intermittent reception, can't walk around bed, dark corridors, noisy AC, no bed lamps, frig rattled, we asked for a queen bed and got 2 singles, of which my feet hung over the edge,... More
